Prince William and Kate Middleton are surrounded by goodness and do not want to get involved in the drama surrounding Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, close family sources told Page Six.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fear the uncomfortable attention that is coming to the royal family all because of his younger brother and sister-in-law’s decision to sit down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“William and Catherine could not be more discreet, they don’t want to get involved in this public bitch fest, but I am sure that William is desperately sad about all this,” a royal source told the outlet.
“Even when Harry spoke about the fallout with William, there was no briefing from them. And by saying nothing, that is the smartest move.”
The source also said William and Kate, who have been in pandemic lockdown at their Norfolk home with their kids make it a point to listen to the advisers around them, while “it appears that Meghan and Harry decide not to listen to anyone.”
“They don’t wish to elevate this soap opera, it’s honestly like watching Elizabeth Hurley in ‘The Royals,’” the source said.
“William and Catherine are surrounded by goodness, they have the Middletons, Carole and Mike, Pippa and her husband, James, and James Middleton and his fiancée, Alizee. They’re such a grounded, happy family.”
According to reports, William and Harry now barely speak and seem to be communicating by WhatsApp messages.
Senior palace aide, American Jason Knauf, was the one who reported Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace HR for alleged bullying of staff while she was still in the UK, which led to the palace promising to launch a probe into the allegation.
Knauf is currently running William and Kate’s royal foundation but had worked for both William and Harry in the past.
